1600 vw motor hard to start once it's warmed up and sits.
1974, 1600 vw w/pict34-3 starts easy when cold, runs very good. Will start up right after it's shut off, but after it sits for 5-10 minutes it's very hard to start and runs very rich. I have adjusted the valves, set the timing to 32 BDC, replaced plugs, rebuilt carb, float was fine. What's next, new carb? It runs great once it starts.
I would think carburator had time to set after warm,and fuel pressure up,the carb is flooding and that may be your issue,replace carburator.
